The 12th Andover (West) Scout Group
Welcome to the 12th Andover (West) Scout Group website
COVID-19 Latest News (06/09/2021): All sections will be returning to scouting over the next week or so and we are pleased to tell you we are at last at the GREEN phase as far as our meetings are concerned as described by the Scout Association. This means that whilst we will continue to be cautious when we meet meeting outside whilst we can, ventilating the HQ as much as possible and cleaning all surfaces and hands etc. regularly, in effect we are back to ‘normal’.
We have created a new risk assessment to cover the latest level of caution which includes things like asking parents to stay outside the HQ for now when dropping off or collecting their young person. Please ask you leaders if you are not sure about how any of this works and they will update you.
It’s been a hard 18 months for us all but we are slowly getting back to normal and we look forward to a new year of fun for everyone.

We are based in the Andover District in North Hampshire. Our Group meet at the Scout Hut on West Portway in Andover (see contact for more details).
Our group consists of Beaver, Cub & Scout sections and in addition, one of the District Explorer units also meets at our hut as well as a Networks section.
We have a great hut with lots of facilities, a large car park and a wonderfully large outside space that is fully and safely enclosed, allowing us to hold camps and many events within our own grounds.
The aim of the Scout Association is to promote the development of young people and help them achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individual, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
